Guilty Pleasures Month Day 18:One Hit Wonders Part 1?
I realize that I've been concentrating on Bands and genres and whole movie franchises, but what about the underdogs who worked there way to the top? I'm talking about the lucky few that produced one good song. A song so good it made the top 40, that stuck in your head. A song you love, but no one else can stand. A true One Hit Wonder/Guilty Pleasure combo.
A band so obscure you've never heard of them. Gunhill Road recorded a novelty song in the early 70's. It was the only song of it's kind on the album. the rest was mellow and introspective.
The 70's were chock full of this wacky one off bands and their singular claims to fame. Here are some of my early faves.
And finally a total classic, especially if you live in Chicago
Be prepared for One Hit Wonders part 2 (the eighties)
